Sophie saw the abandoned, rusting trains, covered in spray painted designs in a variety colors. She knew what Gee wanted to do. Finding a clear spot on one of the trains took another fifteen minutes but they found one.
“Here,” he handed her a can of yellow spray paint. “Have at it.”
Sophie took the can. “What should I write?”
“Anything you want. This is your rebellion, not mine.”
Sophie walked towards the train, thought for a moment, then spray painted a happy face. “There,” she said stepping back to his side. “Are we going to listen to Rebel Yell now?
Gee snorted, taking the can from her. “That song doesn’t mean what you think it does.”
“Stop underestimating me Gee,” she said.
Sophie watched as he spray painted in red and yellow GEE & SOPHIE inside of a heart. He used the same block lettering as the words on the wall of his bedroom.
“Lame,” she grinned. “I could’ve done that. I thought it was supposed to be rebellious.”
“I was aiming for romantic. Besides, you did a happy face,” he accused.
“Nothing says f-the man like an eternal smile,” she defended. “It’s civil disobedience at its finest.”
Gee shook his head. ”Sometimes, I can’t believe you’re real.” He laughed, tossing the cans back into his bag. Standing in front of Sophie, he grabbed her hips and whisper-sang, “I’d give you all and have none, babe.”
Sophie kissed the corner of his lopsided smile, sliding her arms up his back. She squeezed him tight, pressing her body into his. “In the midnight hour babe,” she whispered back. Gee kissed her shoulder and they stood there together, holding each other.
